As befitting any event that centres around mostly scantily clad women and large crowds, there was a strong police presence. This particular officer was amazing – he was asked "how do I get around this thing?" so many times that I was getting ready to snap after only twenty minutes, while he must have dealt with it for hours. Each time he answered it as politely and completely as if it was his first time hearing it.
There's a reason why he has a gun and I don't.
